Favorite *CHICKEN* sandwich

carly_mizzou | Nov 6, 2008 02:27 PM

So I have been totally loving the favorite hamburger thread here! i have to say though (and it's a joke with my friends) I *love* chicken sandwiches. I think I've eaten more of these in my lifetime than anything else, and though it may seem to be a simple dish, it can be done very poorly (which is sad) and they can be done extremely well. So i have to ask what is your favorite chicken sandwich in LA? I'm partial to the grilled-chicken-breast-onna-bun style sandwich, but i'm interested in any kinda chicken on bread style sandwiches. so here's mine...

Cafe 101
The thing is HUGE. it's a massive tasty good blackened chicken breast with a creole mayo that is outta this world. I love it when things are blackened, without tasting burnt. I eat this with a knife and fork and usually end up with about 2-3 meals outta this sandwich. The taste is amazing (super juicy and tender) and the value (it's less than $10!) is what really seals the deal for me. I like it 'cause it's simple and flavorful diner food.

The Waffle
I ate here for the first time about a month ago. I really didn't want to like this place. I got the buffalo chicken sandwich with blue, WOW! An excellent medium spicy marinated chicken breast, the blue cheese was actually melted and had strong flaovor that compliment the buffalo and chicken happiess (I usually don't like blue cheese 'cause it overpowers things) I think this sammy came with bacon. A juicy sandwich without the stringiness some chickie sandwiches can have. Another sandwich I had to eat with a knife and fork Sandwiches with bacon make me so happy!

Both sandwiches had flavorful buns (that sounded wrong), that had a firm texture without being tough. I hate that when you bite into a sammy and everything slides out 'cause you can't "break" the bun. >_<
